VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL IS A BLAST!
HIT THE EDUCATION TAB ABOVE TO SEE SOME PICS!
OUR NURSERY IS OPEN every Sunday during our 10:00 worship. Feel free to bring your children (up through age 5) over to the Parish House at the beginning of worship—we’ll bring them back in time to celebrate the Great Thanksgiving together as one big family.
GOD IS REVEALED IN SCRIPTURE—and you can experience incredible grace by joining us Tuesday mornings for our 8:22 am Bible Study! Go ahead—give it a try—it’s painless and joyful! We’re over in the Parish House…
EVER STAY AT A MONASTERY? It is an amazing spiritual experience! A number of St Andrew’s parishioners have been making a trek to The Society of Saint John the Evangelist for some years now, for a three-day, two-night stint at their Guesthouse in Cambridge. THIS YEAR, THE DATES ARE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13 THROUGH SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15—AND THERE ARE STILL ROOMS AVAILABLE. Please see Father Chip if you’d like to join us!
THE VINEYARD SOUND IS BACK AGAIN THIS YEAR AT ST ANDREW’S on Friday nights. Concerts begin at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm, and they’re a Vineyard (and St Andrew’s) tradition for a good reason—it’s a great time! We could use some volunteersto take either July 31 or August 7 (or at least one of the concerts) to be here as St Andrew’s “chaperones”—so if you can help us, please sign up in the Parish Hall—and your concert is FREE!
SAVE THE DATE! SEPTEMBER 20, 2015! That’s the date that Lia Kahler, internationally renowned mezzo-soprano opera singer and Island resident, will be performing a fundraiser concert at the Whaling Church to help raise critically-needed funds for two important causes: The Island Clergy Association’s Emergency Fund for the Homeless, and for Island Veterans. In addition to the smashing concert, there will be a Silent Auction. Stay tuned for further details over the summer, but do save the date!
SUMMER PARTY AT THE RECTORY! Tuesday, August 18, at 6:00 pm. It is a fun and casual POTLUCK affair, and we’ll grill up the burgers, dogs and chicken, so all you’ll need to do is bring a salad, side dish, dessert, or appetizer. (If it rains too much, we’ll cancel, and you can find out by calling the church answering machine at 627-5330). GREAT WAY FOR OUR SUMMER FRIENDS TO HAVE SOME FUN WITH OUR CHURCH FAMILY! PLEASE COME AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS!
